Re: missing Advisory at ftp.freebsd.org

I am missing the advisory for openssl at ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/CERT/

We stopped uploading advisories there because we kept on running into
problems with ftp mirrors being out of date, while have complete control
over the security.freebsd.org webserver and can make sure files are
there before we send out the advisory.

Background:
For long time i used the the quickpatch utility at my workstation to
notify me about issues and *how* to fix it.

With the web based advisory this is not possible since the .asc file
contains only the pgp signature (no more details).

Huh? The advisories on the security.freebsd.org webserver are exactly
the same files as the advisories which went to ftp.freebsd.org.
